PERGOLESI, G.B.: Prigioniero superbo (Il) / La Serva Padrona (Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, 2009, 2011) (NTSC) 101654
PERGOLESI, G.B.: Prigioniero superbo (Il) / La Serva Padrona (Fondazione Pergolesi Spontini, 2009-2011) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) 108068

From the harpsichord, Rovaris leads a vivacious performance of an engaging score. Each singer is at least good, but the three mezzos stand out—for sheer voice, contraltoish Marina Rodríguez-Cusí as the beleaguered princess; for dazzling technique, Marina De Liso as the dastardly king of the Goths; for expressivity, Marina Comparato as the prince lover.

Bass Carlo Lepore sings handsomely…Soprano Alessandra Marianelli, expressing feelings and sexuality through nuanced singing, is visually and vocally captivating. © 2013 Opera News Read complete review

Fulvue Drive-in, November 2012

…we have a rare double feature on one disc. Giovanni Battista’s Il Prigioner superbo…& La serva padrona…Prigonier may be slightly better than serva in this way, but are top rate all around properly paired as semi-comical tales of romance and the many obstacles in its way… © 2012 Fulvue Drive-in Read complete review
